Dub techno producers Jamie Drouin and Michael Pettit slow things down on their second exceptional basic_sounds release, Commute. Influenced by their travels over the last year, with Pettit presently residing in Holland, the duo masterfully deliver two 20-minute long dubby soundscapes, idyllic for those introspective moments spent on commuter trains. “Westward” is a reflective atmospheric journey with restrained basslines, echoing pads and rhythmic clicks. Organic warm washes and distant...

Sante Fe based producer Watson (aka Frank Watson Rose) started playing music in 1990 after his mom bought him a guitar. Later picking up the drums, he found rhythm came naturally to him and began constructing his own compositions. Watson draws from a wide range of influences and experiences, from performing in a Seattle grunge band in the mid-90’s to learning west African tribal rhythms. In 2009 he discovered the Monome, which lead him to become the artist he is today. Watson has performed at...

German producer Erich Schall delivers Direction, a follow up to his exceptional 2011 debut album Tröte on Cologne based netlabel, Der Kleine Grüne Würfel. Direction opens with "Outside," a floating dub groove mixed deep with echoes and light shuffling percussion while subtle hints of a "big band" orchestra haunt the piece throughout. The second composition, "Inside," appropriates Schall's dub forms into driving techno relying again on echoing tonal melodies and...

Recently relocating to Boulder, CO from Philadelphia, Radere (aka Carl Ritger) usually builds dense textural ambient drone soundscapes from heavily filtered guitar loops, utilizing an ever-evolving array of pedals. However, his latest basic_sounds release, The Earth, Laid Bare, showcases a softer and gentler approach for Radere, eschewing the squalls of distortion and white noise that have defined his recent style. Recorded during a flurry of travel over the past year, Radere found time on...
